COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden naked oats mashed with dark crystal and robust roasted malts create a luscious black brew with a satin smooth finish. Layering UK Target hops in the boil adds a pleasant, earthy complexity while higher fermentation temperatures enhance the overall flavor with fruity esters. An old-world style, done the Green Flash way. Big, bold, flavorful and complex – Double Stout.

Beersiveknown (3950) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 27, 2012
Rich coffee nose on this dark brown beer with cola head. Collapses to a lacing. Thick molten chocolate in the body with a rich and roasted barley finish. Warming alcohol lingers at back of throat

trevor211 (1421) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Was certainly pleased to find this one at the local shop! Pours black, with a creamy tan head that dissipates into a mocha-colored film. Pretty. Burnt toffee, marshmallow creme, and dark roasted malts on the nose. Big, smooth flavor mirrors the aroma, with a slight nuttiness and a weak hop punch at the finish. Nice and smooth -- just a bit of alcohol burn -- this one is really tasty for something sold in a sixer.

Darkness, beige head not so long, smells coffee, choc bit caramel, and the alcohol is perceived, in the mouth nice full body, sharpy same coffee and choc as smell ending with sweetness and the Hoppy of a imperial

rocketsauce (2) - Arizona, USA - MAR 19, 2012 does not count
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2012 This is an absolutely beautiful beer. Black as night with a luxurious, frothy chocolate head. All the stout flavors you crave make themselves well known. Smooth on the palate. I could use a little more carbonation but with the style it is understandable. Top notch beer from a brewery well known for its hoppy selections.

wlajwl (4622) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Grains, mild roasted malts and a hint of nuttiness in aroma. The flavor complex fruit, grains/malts and a coffee-like bitter finish. No off-flavors, this stood on its own as far ales go.

IndyBeerSnob (132) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Poured onto a tulip. Pours pitch black with incredibly appetizing tan milky coffee head. Taste is really roasty hints of coffee and some dark.chocolate. this is a sophisticated imperial stout. Really complex mixture of flavor. Some Bourbon aspects as well. Green flash fucking rules.

MmmcKay (1052) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Black in color but thins to dark brown at the rims. Decent head and lacing. Lush and smooth. Really a mellow style of stout. Iced coffee and espresso. Roasty but not over done. Not thick. Hop presence as well. Good fun stout. Could drink a lot of this. Big fan.

Zeswaft (1466) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Rich and roasty chocolate aroma. Syrupy sweet chocolate and molasses. Not overly thick and cloying, no boozy soy sauce flavors. Excellent decision not to go off the charts imperial stout. Awesome.
